You can try to do a repair from the add/remove programs. If that does not work, you can try to totally remove msn messenger from your computer and do a fresh install.

    there is a possibility that there is a spybot on your computer that causes this problem. If you are using a windows xp computer, try to do a System Restore and use as a restore point the time when you do not have any problems with windows messenger.

    You can also try using the Last Known Good Configuration setting on your computer.

How to uninstall windows messenger in windows 7


It can be done through the Control Panel and the Add/Remove Programs function. You will NOT, however, see "Windows Live Messenger" on the programs list. What you will see is an item called "Windows Live Essentials".

Click on the Change/Remove button for Windows Live Essentials, then select Uninstall, and then in the next window check "Messenger." Then continue with the uninstall process.

Hope that's helpful.

Ok, so installed most of the things, have my webcam hooked up, but it wont work for anything but the programs that came with the disk. Can it be used for other things then the programs?


It can, providing its compatible with the chat program of your choice and it needs to be configured to that chat program.
example - Windows Live Messenger (msn)
Vista - If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

CONFIGURE TO MESSENGER
Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

If it fails to work here concentrate on your webcam drivers and software before moving forward.

Set your webcam mic (if it has one as default)
Vista -

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

Messenger is loaded but i have no icon to click on.


You need the following OS to support Messenger 10 beta
Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/XP64/Vista64
If that is not a problem read on.

The problem may be due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.

Uninstall from the C drive

Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger >> UNWISE

Unwise is the command to start the uninstall process - click 'Auto' if prompted
The Yahoo uninstall software can be problematic you may have old software remaining on the C drive
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Check
- The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times.

Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.

How to remove msn


I take it that you don't wish to use MSN for internet access. You can delete it from your network connections window.
Then you will have to set up a connection that will use either dial-up or some form of high-speed connection. That will become your default connection.

My webcam tells my viewer that im not connected, whats wrong?


In general, either the messenging software that you are using i.e. AIM, YM, MSN, etc is not yet configured to connect the webcam OR you may have software firewall blocking the ports used by the messenging software, OR a router may need to be configured to allow the port needed by the messenging software to pass unimpeded.
More information would be appreciated

Lifecam VX-3000 will not connect wth MSN Messenger?


It's not a driver problem based on the fact it works with other applications. Since it won't work with Messenger my strong suspicion is that's your culprit (Messenger)....even though it worked before.

Uninstall and try it again. When you uninstall make sure you delete any folders found in "Widows Explorer" that are under program files (not in Windows itself....or at least not at this point). Make sure you are using the latest version by the way since you are going to install it again anyway.

As to why it did not work you might want to check the Microsoft knowledge base...(there can be some sort of a conflict particularly if you updated software, downloaded patches, installed a new application, whatever).

If this doesn't work...run your antivirus and Spybot search and destroy on the entire drive. If you are not running an antivirus AVAST or AVG are both excellent (and free as is Spybot.)

Let me know if this does not work....odds are it will. Tango
